What will be the growth of apparel sales within the next two years? Will consumer expenses continue growing next year? When will bankruptcies level off? Will interest rates remain low in the coming months?
Instead of a crystal ball, we use selected econometric models to interpret past trends and forecast economic variables using HCCG, Inc.’s proprietary economic model.

Who needs an Economic Forecast?
